Latest UFC event (May, 2009)

I was seriously impressed by the two headline fights.

Machida vs Evans:

Wow. Never seen anyone do that to Evans. Fantastic fight, Machida is a phenom. It is really good to see his style come to fruition in that fashion. I'd love to spend some time actually training with that guy.

Matt vs Matt:

I loved the stepping throws each did...even with the power of Hughes body lock, that stepping throw was fantastic. Looked to me like he used the forward foot to trip a bit along with the movement and the body lock. And Serra coming right back with a similar throw at the end of the last round...Wow. I still kinda think Serra won though...anyone else have an opinion on that?

Best,
Ron (wish I had taped those two fights, lots to learn from them)

Re: Latest UFC event

Ron, what can you learn from them? UFC is not "real"

Re: Latest UFC event

"KARATE IS BACK"!!!

Funny to listen to Joe Rogan who is usually a darn good announcer stumble all over himself trying to explain why Machida Sensei's Karate is so effective "Why it's because he knows MMA of course"! LOL

I guess there's something to Kumite after all. LOL

Hoooah for us Gendai Dudes!

What a great fight...and the rest of the card was pretty darn good too. I love the UFC...

Next up one of my faves Cheick Kongo!!!

Re: Latest UFC event

cool...i will have to catch that one. I haven't watched a fight in a while. One, I don't own a TV. Two, I ain't paying the price. Three, tired of seeing the same thing over and over.

Re: Latest UFC event

For what it's worth: I liked the Machida fight. Nice to see notably different strategies...that work. I love UFC (well, maybe not so much anymore)...but even I get sick of watching Gnd&Pnd after a while.

Ok; serious question now:
Is this Keith Jardine dancing? You can jump to 1:00 without missing anything. I like his waterboy. I *should* have a waterboy...come to think of it.

Man, I hope he never sees this post.

Re: Latest UFC event

I don't know.

I like Machita. What I find most interesting about him is his ability to control the distance and the timing on his straight punches.

But his fight against Evans wasn't that impressive in my opinion. The exchange that was the beginning of the end for Evans has become a regular occurrence in mma.

Almost every time guys come out with their hands low, or drop them during exchanges and once that happens a KO is almost inevitable.

One of these days somebody in the mma community will realize the importance of a good guard.

Re: Latest UFC event

Machida's posture (shisei) was the best that I have ever seen in a UFC event. That posture is the type of posture that Ushiro Sensei emphasizes. I have been spending the last two years trying to "fix" my posture and maintain the posture through a wide range of movements (standing, on the ground, ...).

This fight should be a text book example of why good posture is so important.

Re: Latest UFC event

yes seen those fights Evans has never impressed me so no surprise on that fight and Matt hughes won by strength no technique.
I would like to see Aikido in UFC as well as JuJitsu.

Re: Latest UFC event (May, 2009)

Yep.

You can call what Hughes has strength if you want...it worked. Personally, I like the throws he did, and I even think the other guy won.

Best,
Ron
